Habanero-Onion Soup with Lime

Habanero-Onion Soup with Lime

This soup requires only a handful of ingredients but hits a wide range of flavor notes: savory, sweet, spicy, tangy and herbal. Habanero chilies are intensely spicy but also fruity. To achieve a soup with the right flavor but without scorching heat, we mince one chili and leave the other whole, cutting slits into its sides so it releases its flavor, then fish it out before serving. While the soup is simmering, we throw together a fragrant mix of lime and herbs for garnishing individual servings.

Tip

Don’t touch your face with your hands after handling the chilies, as residual capsaicin will cause a burning sensation. If you have disposable foodsafe gloves, it’s a good idea to use them to prep the chilies.
